Recent guest reviews

The hotel was nice, good location, but very noisy due to our room was right above the lobby and next to the elevators. The staff was very nice and helpful, check in was very easy.

Enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. Thr staff was courteous oy was just not enough on duty

Clean comfortable room. Good breakfast buffet Welcoming staff

The hotel was very nice. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The buffet was the same everyday with enough variation of foods

Close to Washington, DC, would stay there again. We wanted to book a bus tour and see a few more of the historical sights but due to our time schedule we were unable to stay, which means we will return to D.C. area in the near future.

Nice, clean room. Pool temperature was perfect. Only negative, was that there was only one working elevator. Other than that...it was a great experience.

Very convenient location. We loved visiting old town Alexandria and enjoyed the walking ghost tour of historic buildings. Easy access to interstate system allowed us to visit DC attractions and harbor district. Close to shopping and restaurants however, hotel did not have restaurant, but offered great hot breakfast buffet. Small convenience store with limited choices for snacks and beverages. Front desk staff very informative and pleasant to talk to. Property was clean and well kept with comfortable rooms including fridge and microwave for preparing own treats.

I did not realize hotel did not have a restaurant and there weren't any within walking distance. Had to get own transportation whenever we wanted to eat. Shuttle would only take us to Metro stop. Breakfast was OK except whenever demand was high they ran out of food and only had one staffer to replenish and caused a long wait for food adding to the inconvenience.

Just needed a room for one night. Room was as expected, simple and clean. Great value considering cost of similar rooms in the area.

good hotel ,location and service and amenities and nice breaksast

The room we had was on the eighth floor overlooking the front of the hotel and South Van Dorn Street. As there was ample outdoor parking spaces, we were able to park in a spot at the front of the hotel where we could keep an eye on our vehicle from our room. Street noise could be heard in our room, but pulling the blackout curtain eliminated that noise. The floor was quiet the two nights we stayed there. Our room was clean and the air was fresh. The air handler was noisy when running, but maintained a level temperature. A microwave, a compact refrigerator, a coffeemaker, an iron, a blow dryer, and safe were available in our room. Hot water to both the sink and shower was abundant although the water pressure was less than forceful, at least by my standards. Both elevators were very fast. The breakfast was free, tasty, and consisted of the usual sweet pastries, cereal, juices, scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy with a nice addition of three Belgian waffle makers available for use. Check in and out was smooth and painless as the staff was attentive and professional. If I would have one complaint, it would be that the driveway to the parking lot of South Van Dorn Street comes up abruptly if one is driving south on Van Dorn with the flow of traffic; and one will need to cross three lanes of oncoming traffic to get to the driveway if one is driving north on Van Dorn Street. Traffic on Van Dorn Street moves quickly making less aggressive drivers pale at the idea of leaving the driveway and venturing forth. Our stay was a pleasant experience, and we would consider staying here again..

This was a better-than-average Comfort Inn. The breakfast area converts to a restaurant at night with a fryer and a flattop. Burgers/wings/fries/etc. The food is not great but priced accordingly, and it's convenient if you want to stay in. Breakfast is what you'd expect. The staff was great and the room was clean.

Nice clean accommodating. Unusual way of service at breakfast - probably a local custom

I was very surprised by the new decor and how large the pool was

Everything was great until the elevator stopped working, but the staff came to the rescue and saved the day....in all we had a very nice stay!

My kids and I enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and welcoming, and the hotel location was exactly what we needed.

The Hotel and staff was really great. I came in late around 2:30 a. m. and they still kept my room. The shuttled you to and from the metro station, The breakfast was better than expected. it wasn't just coffee and donuts or pastries, they had Waffles, cold cereal, muffins, bagels, juices and milk. I thought it was a great value, I will be staying there again when I visit Washington DC.

I called to ensure I would be able to have an early check in for the upcoming trip and was told no problem. When we arrived I was told I would have to wait. The Staff member promptly found us a room ( after I explained I called ahead). The room unfortunately was disgusting. There was hair in the bed and food on the floor. I contacted the front desk and was immediately given a new room. Before unpacking I inspected the room and was happy. Its not that easy to enter and exit during rush hour but, all in all it was ok.

The location of this hotel was a little out of the way for where our family was near Old Town, but not terribly hard to find. The room itself was extremely average - not fancy, not horrible. Breakfast was decent. Outdoor pool could have used a little bug removal in the water. Fitness room was good.

This hotel, though rated 2 stars, has all the basic needs and then some. The room was very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable....LOVED the pillows. We had a 2 Queen Bed no smoking with a small fridge and microwave on the 8th floor. For us, the place was perfect. Excellent breakfast in the morning, shuttle to the metro that will take you right into DC, directly off the major routes (95 and 395). Not noisy and pets were in the building. We enjoyed use of the small fitness center in the morning, but due to weather did not get to use the outdoor pool. The price was right as well. My only complaint is that there was no fan in the bathroom to get rid of shower steam so the room did get a bit warm for a short period of time. Staff was very accommodating. There is a small cafe for evening snacks or a quick meal that we enjoyed as well. Would recommend this hotel to anyone, and if staying in Alexandria again I would stay here.
